Position as PhD student in developmental psychology. The project that is the financial basis for the position concerns the relation between aggression and cognitive control functions (so called executive functions) in children, and how these factors longitudinally are related to peer relations.
Qualifications: The applicant must have a basic university degree with psychology as a major subject.
Specific Qualifications: Experience of performing testing and working with children, as well as shown administrative independence are considered as additional qualifications. Good knowledge in Swedish and English is required.
Selection: The selection will be based on an assessment of the applicant’s aptitude for successful completion of graduate studies, made by the professors at the department. The bases for this judgment are the previously written research thesis, interviews (if deemed necessary), and finally, the plan for a research project.
Financing: These positions are financed through a combination of grants and department resources. The successful applicant will be supported the first year with a doctoral grant and the remaining three years by a doctoral studentship.
